This is would be my first time toying with the idea of sending my son to a centre for Math and English. Any one has ever send their children to any of the Kip McGarth centre? How was it like? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

kitty2: well perhaps this means we have to try on our own and take our chances. I will be arranging to visit one of the centre and see how it goes from there.
Will post my feedback then :wink:

May I know which level is your child? How is your child study? Personally I won't recommend Kip McGrath. Their system is like 5-6 students per session. And all could be doing different level/subject. Now u imagine. Each session is 90min. U divide 90 min by 5. That is 18 min per student! U tell me how is that even possible for any learning to take place?

Also, they claim that their tutor are NIE trained. But it doesnt mean that a Pri Sch teacher can teach Sec students or a Sec teacher can teach Pri students. It is quite different unless they have the experience in doing so.

Materials wise, a lot of them are from Australia. Now, I believe you would be better off buying assessment books in this instances.

Just my opinion. Maybe other parents who have more positive experience care to share their experience here?

Hi, anyone kids in KipMcgrath. Any feedback please. Just call the new centre at Nanyang. The staff said that the maximum students is 5 per class. Sounds good but not sure about their standard
